PlanetSide 2 Quick Tips, Episode 5 -

PlanetSide 2 Quick Tips is a brand new series we're debuting this week that aims to give our readers some expert knowledge to help you improve your game in Sony Online Entertainment's MMOFPS PlanetSide 2.

PlanetSide 2 can be a challenge if you've never played an MMOFPS before but our team has been playing the game since the early stages of beta and we've built a pretty solid understanding of PlanetSide 2's mechanics and how to get the most out of the vehicles, weapons and equipment in the game.

Check out the latest episode of our PlanetSide 2 Quick Tips series!

Their armor and shields can take more punishment than most other soldiers can, allowing them to dominate in direct close-quarters conflict where their heavy weapons are most effective. In addition to the survivability provided by the Reinforced Exosuit’s defenses, Heavy Assault soldiers also have access to prototype Nanite Mesh Generators that temporarily reduce the velocity of incoming projectiles, decreasing their kinetic impact on the user.

Though the experimental technology currently requires the user to remain momentarily stationary while the mesh is being formed, NMGs have shown themselves to be an integral component to the Heavy Assault’s continued presence on the field.
